The room was spacious, bathroom was large, breakfast was plentiful and delicious, owners were delightful... what else can we say? Another couple that arrived said they were desperately looking for a place with good breakfast (They were French) and we're very happy with the farm fresh eggs, home made cheese, bread etc.....

We rented a car on Orkney, which I would highly recommend. Access to the Burnside Farm B&B was easy. Hosts were really wonderful and went out of their way to be helpful, food was fabulous. Room was very, very comfortable. I also liked being on Stromness - we enjoyed the dinner options and strolling through town. It was also nice... More

Everything was great, from the warm welcome onwards. It was only a few minutes walk from the harbour but we gratefully accepted the offer of a lift. Lovely comfortable beds, great up-to-date en suite facilities and fabulous breakfasts, including lots of local produce. I shall miss the bere bannocks! Joy provided daily updates on what was on, the weather and... More

My husband and I stayed at Burnside in August for six nights. The farmhouse was situated within easy walking distance from Stromness and I loved being on a working farm. Joy was a perfect host and we wanted for nothing. The room was excellent with the comfiest bed and everything we needed. The breakfasts were the best, homemade jam, bread,... More

On our recent visit to the Orkneys, we were lucky enough to stay at Burnside Farm. The location was very good, being equidistant from Skara Brae and the Ring of Brodgar, and within walking distance to the restaurants in Stromness. Joy and Robbie are wonderful, the rooms and baths were very clean and comfortable, and breakfast was outstanding. Joy even... More

We received a very friendly greeting from Robbie on our arrival, and were shown to a gorgeous room (the Scapa room) with a very comfortable bed. The ensuite is spacious and modern. Joy is a wonderful cook, providing us with excellent breakfasts. The cheeses made from the farm’s milk were wonderful, and the home-baked shortbread cookies provided in the room... More

The Burnside B&B is located within the farmhouse just off the main road leading into Stromness and is a 10 minute walk or so from town along a pavement with street lighting. We booked about 3 weeks in advance for 2 nights in a double room at £85 per night B&B, subject to a 25% deposit. The fact that we... More

This is the ONLY place to stay if you are on the main Orkney island! Absolutely wonderful B&B. Stayed in the Scarpa Flow room with a great view and stunning bathroom. Loved the shower! Great breakfasts and the owner, Joy, features local produce and cheese made from their dairy cows. Clean, comfortable and lots of extra care. Cookies, chocolates and... More
